One of the hardest parts of adoption is the lack of communication between parents and new child. There is lots of gesturing, facial communication, signing, and just agreeing. Payne has the most language of any child we have adopted... he and our guide Anna carry on conversations and I LOVE knowing what he says. He will talk to Scott and I constantly... sometimes I repeat back to him or try to talk to him and he says... Huh? He knows he can't understand us and this is pretty much what we hear all day long~
Lots of talking going on... don't ever want to forget!
